Juvenile Notes - 24th August

Our academy training sessions will continue this Saturday morning for players between under 6 and under 9 at the club grounds between 10.30 and 11.30.

Under 11
It was a busy couple of days for the Under 11 age group. On Wednesday last we went to Lismore for a mini hurling blitz where we took on Lismore first. In an entertaining game we shared the spoils. Straight into our next match against Midleton and the boys built on the first game and won well at the end. On Friday night we went back to football for our latest Town & Country game when Gaultier visited the Burgery. After an even enough first half the eastern side proved too strong for our lads and won comfortably at the finish. Next up is the Nire in a couple of weeks. Football training continues Friday nights at 6pm till 7pm.

Under 14
The Under 14 hurling team continue to train every Tuesday and Thursday night at the club grounds.
All in the juvenile club would also like to wish Colin Foley and Alex Norris the very best of luck as they represent the club and their county in the Tony Forristal and Sonny Walsh competitions in Waterford this weekend. This is a marvellous achievement for both players and hopefully they will have a weekend that they will never forget.

Under 10
It was also a busy week for our Under 10 team. On Monday night of last week they took on St Olivers and on Saturday last they took on Ballybacon Grange who were coached by ex Tipperary goalie Brendan Cummins. The lads really enjoyed both matches, and as I said earlier in the year in this page, are improving with every outing. They were also due to play Fourmilewater last night (Tuesday). At the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 13
Our Under 13 hurling team had a very good win against Lismore in the last week and are now into a semi final of the western championship which will be played on September 3rd.

Our minor hurling team played the latest round of their championship on Thursday night last against Lismore.  On the evening that was ideal for hurling it was the Lismore team that upped their game in the second half to come out on top on a score line of 2-20 to 3-08. Next match here for the lads is against Portlaw/Ballyduff on the 22nd August.

Under 16
After a poor display in their last match against Roanmore our Under16 team came into their latest game in their championship needing a moral boosting win. On the night it was De Le Salle who provided the opposition. Our lads were much sharper and hungry than they were in previous games putting in their best display so far and thus coming away with victory on the night on a score line of 0-20 to 2-10. Well done to all involved.

Club History
Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club was formed in 1967 as a result of the amalgamation of Abbeyside Hurling and Football Clubs and Ballinacourty Football Club. It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane. Located on the eastern side of the River Colligan, it forms the northern and eastern shorelines of Dungarvan Harbour from Abbeyside Church to Ballinacourty Lighthouse
Development Fund
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past 10 years with the population of our parish increasing rapidly. We must ensure that we have the best facilities for all our players. We want to ensure that the next generation have the facilities that they need and deserve. We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
Strategic Plan
Past generations have had their visions for the future of our club. These are our current aims and with these achieved we hope to hand on the club to future generations in the same healthy state it was passed onto us.
